New professors

Our professors explore the world and life from a wide range of perspectives. Newly appointed professors are celebrated at the university twice a year: usually in May and in December. As they take up their new role, each professor holds a public inaugural lecture. 

The next professorial lectures will be held virtually on 7–11 September 2020, during New professors’ week. Each lecture lasts roughly 15 minutes and focuses on the professors’ research topics, which range from memory disorders and statistical methods in economics to political participation.

Usually, newly appointed professors are celebrated through inaugural lectures, which take place during a single day and are popular public presentations of the professors’ fields and personal research topics. Normally, each lecture lasts 20 minutes, and audience members have the opportunity to move from one lecture venue to another between lectures.
